The Long Bien bridge across the Red River connects Hanoi with the main port of Haiphong. Designed by Gustave Eiffel, the bridge sustained significant damage during the Vietnam War. Only half of the bridge retains its original shape, but a rebuilding project supported by the French government is currently in progress to restore the bridge to its original appearance.

The bridge is very busy, but it has a walk way for pedestrians. It's not so close but not that far from the old quarter. The scenery changes rapidly from urban to rural with beautiful rice fields and trees, and of course, you can see...More
